    Papermate pens 10 pack is selling for $1.00. Target has a $1/1 Papermates coupon on their site to get them for free."

    Walgreens has these same pen for .49 I believe is what I paid for them yesterday. And their mechanical pencils are could be vice versa though.

    Queenbee - that is such a sweet thing your son is doing! You may just want to contact his school to see if they have a need. Or you could contact the local Dept of Social Services and they should be able to help find a place to donate.

    Hershey's makes a very bold colored ice cream -I am not positive about the name or flavor but "vanilla" comes to mind on both. It is very bright and might work for your party .
    Happy Birthday to the Sonic Fan !

    jzka23vzka - Ruby Tuesday seems to operate their customer loyalty program via e-mail, but I know Red Robin switched to a customer loyalty card about a year ago that you have to physically go in and ask for. Your free birthday meal will be loaded on it once you register your card.

    I had never heard of Which Wich either, but they're actually a pretty cool place - check out their website at They have several in the Raleigh area.

    Lastly, I forgot to tell you that IHOP also provides a free Rooty Tooty Fresh 'N Fruity breakfast for your birthday.

    Here's a larger list of birthday freebies:

    My son told me that he wanted to do charity work(he's 9). So I gave him a few suggestions and he chose to ask family and friends to purchase school supplies for needy children. He said that all children deserve to have nice school supplies. I know he's a pretty awesome kid...But, my question is, does anyone know of any organization in Franklin County that would greatly benefit from a school supply donation. My son is overly excited about his collection of supplies and with it getting close to the beginning of school, we would like to donate these by the end of the week....Let me know if you have ideas...:)

    Thanks Diane! I successfully signed up for Red Robin and Ruby Tuesday a few years back, but they must have kicked me out. Hopefully I can straighten it out in time. I've never heard of Which Wich, but I signed up and crossed my fingers that I'll get me coupon in time ;)

    I posted these Target specials under the Back to School section, but since these sales don't start until 8/5, am reposting them here:

    Scotch Magic Tape will be on sale for $0.49. Target currently has a $0.50/1 Scotch Magic tape on their website. With that coupon, the tape is free.

    Papermate pens 10 pack is selling for $1.00. Target has a $1/1 Papermates coupon on their site to get them for free.

    jzka23vzka - don't forget to get your free birthday meals at Red Robin, Ruby Tuesdays, and Which Wich (off the top of my head) purchase required at any them. You'll need to sign up for each of their respective e-mail lists or frequent buyer card first, but if your b-day hasn't passed yet, you should still be able to take advantage of these great offers. Enjoy your birthday!

    Hello ALL! Can someone tell me if there are any stores having candy sales right now. I specifically need Skittles (the will be chaos emeralds for my Sonic the Hedgehog fan's bday party). I am also trying to find out if anyone knows which store carries Superman ice cream or Playdoh ice cream? They probably won't be on sales, but I need them for the color. Thanks!
